The cyber-threat scene is ever-changing and ever-increasing. Staying up to date with the malicious trends threatening your entire business’ infrastructure is a priority that should not be taken lightly. As hackers are becoming more creative and aggressive in their approaches, cybercrimes are becoming an ever-growing online pandemic. It’s imperative than ever to protect your business and personal devices from breaches and growing cyber threats.

Looking back at 2020 alone, there have been some rather shocking statistics. According to FintechNews, 27% of COVID-19 cyberattacks targeted the banking sector or healthcare organizations in 2020. To put things more into perspective, COVID-19 is credited for a 238% rise in cyberattacks on Banks alone while Healthcare was the most expensive industry in data breach costs, coming in at a whopping $7.13 million USD according to (IBM).

IBM also found that it takes an average of 280 days to identify and contain a breach – the amount of damage that can be done alone in 280 days is overwhelming.

Cybersecurity is continually challenged by hackers, data loss, privacy, risk management and changing cybersecurity strategies. The number of cyberattacks is not expected to decrease anytime in the near future. Moreover, increased entry points for attacks, such as with the arrival of the internet of things (IoT), increase the need to secure networks and devices.

If you’re finding it overwhelming to ensure your company is consistently up to date with the latest in cybersecurity protection, you’re not alone. Maintaining optimal levels of protection in a constantly evolving threat landscape is a challenge for all organizations, especially after COVID-19. Traditional reactive approaches, in which resources were put toward protecting systems against the biggest known threats, while lesser known threats were undefended, is no longer a sufficient tactic. To keep up with changing security risks, a more proactive and adaptive approach is necessary.
